Margot's Great Idea
TEBAF Margot has come up with a great idea. No, really.
A lively debate about the future of Europe is always welcome and I
understand that the President of France has proposed a “wise men’s
group” to provide inspiration and ideas.
Here is my idea: appoint a “smart kid’s group” as a complement. (Or why not an “angry women’s group”…). Engage those that are too often talked about, too seldom with.
Ask how young people want their lives, what education they want, how to live together in a multicultural Europe of rapid change
Yes, why not? In fact, why not ask everyone their views? We could even invent a word for it...something like, ooooh, say, election? Or even referendum? Ask the citizenry of Europe whether they wish to be ruled by the ex-Swedish Minister for Religion for example.

It's much easier to ignore a small number of people than it is to ignore an entire population - so a 'wise man' group is definitely the smarter option for governments.
